Abstract This research project explores how listening functions as a significant device in my moving-image practice and its associated field research. It argues that specific listening practices can expand visual comprehension in moving-image works that engage landscape and place as a principal subject. In this practice-led PhD, listening is approached in relation to visual documentation as a complex and intuitive condition that engages a multiplicity of processes related to movement, looking, materiality and forms of encounter. These processes are then analysed to establish a space that emphasises how listening can form new engagements pertaining to fieldwork and the moving image. The framework for the dissertation is centred on field research undertaken during the creation of three distinct moving-image works: Undercurrents, Between Two Suns and The Spectral Field. By critically examining listening through the associated field research for each work, and by interrogating a broad range of philosophical arguments and related disciplines, this research project offers new strategies for listening and contributes to the larger field of audiovisual research.
